I think they're talking about accessing the sites through Tor, not downloading.

http://www.come.in seems to be working as a proxy to access all of those sites ( on BT)

Very disappointing to see us continuing to bow to corporate sponsored web censorship. Maintaining the freedom of the Internet should trump upholding corporate profit.

I have my own Satellite connection in the UK :shiftyninja: :D

You could just use various torrent search programs. BitChe etc.

Sent a tip in about this on the day it happened.
I was... um... monitoring kat for someone and it worked one minute, the next time I refreshed, it didn't.

Shame it wasn't news worthy :/

This week several of the largest Internet providers in the UK started to block KickassTorrents, Fenopy and H33T, but this doesn’t mean that the sites have become entirely inaccessible. As a direct result of the blockades several proxies for the banned sites are now being overloaded with traffic..

if Tor can get you to the website, then you SHOULD, I'd think, be able to download

Tor spoofs your IP and you can select I think where you are(imaginatively)

Tor spoofs your IP and you can select I think where you are(imaginatively) say you're in the UK but spoof that you are in the US or Germany even

Your torrenting client gives the server your real IP address via Tor and then everyone connects to you bypassing Tor AFAIK.

This is truly censorship, Idk about the UK but I know France is good at taking matters to the streets (i.e., a protest)
